In our architecture section we showcase hand-picked contemporary house designs along with beautiful architectural concept designs from all over the globe. These galleries contain hot design trends and features everything from small wooden cottages to large modern skyscrapers. Put together by architects who’s really pushing the envelope by playing with unusual shapes and materials to create truly unique house designs. Some might look at these designs and ask “Why?”, but I look at them and say “Why not!”.
